Abstract. The article is to present two categories of work flexibility, i.e. flexibility of employment forms and working time flexibility in their mutual relations. The review of subject literature is supported by the results of empirical studies conducted among 397 workers employed at 49 enterprises in Poland. The objective was to answer the question whether the categories under study are mutually covariant. The conducted studies confirm that flexible solutions referring to working time influence the application of flexible (non-standard) employment forms. The conducted analysis illustrates that these variables are mutually related.
